Veterans Urge Canadian Government to Outlaw Nazi Party, Ban Its Publications

Download PDF for this date

The Royal Canadian Legion, a veterans group open to all Canadian war veterans, petitioned the Canadian Government and all provinces and municipalities today to ban the Canadian National Socialist party. The resolution noted that the Canadian Nazis had declared publicly “that the City of London is to become a stronghold of the party in Canada,” and declared that “the expressed aims and objectives” of the small Canadian Nazi group “are in direct conflict with the democratic principles without which no free nation can endure.”

The resolution to the Federal and local governments urged them “to act in concert to declare the activities of the Canadian National Socialist party as seditious and that the continued existence of the party be forbidden and that dissemination of its scurrilous and treasonable utterances and publications be banned.”
